We are very excited to fully implement the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program at Heritage Elementary for the 2014 – 2015 school year.
It's not what you get, it's what you are becoming...
Over the years at Heritage, we have recognized students who SOAR in:
At school, we recognize children who SOAR, as one way to motivate our students to become a person who is kind, caring and courteous, succeeds academically, develops good habits, makes positive choices, leads the way, and keeps friendships.
Classroom teachers bring together their students in each grade to recognize and present SOAR awards to students who consistently meet our SOAR expectations.
This year's end of trimester SOAR assemblies will focus on Leadership. The students honored at these assemblies will receive a SOARING Leadership Award. We will specifically recognize two to four students at each grade level for consistently meeting our SOAR expectations and demonstrating exceptional leadership. Our students are learning about leadership in our monthly SOAR classes.
To receive a SOARING Leadership Award, students must consistently SOAR in each area of Safety, Ownership, Attitude and Respect. Our expectations are:
